Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed WAMP on a secondary IP, which works great;

I used the following article to make the changes:


Wamp/Apache works great, but now I cannot see my localhost; Im expecting to see the IIS7 homepage.

I can only see the wamp server homepage using the secondary IP address.

My host file looks like: localhost

xxx.xx.xxx.xxx example.com.au

I would appreciate any help on this please, any thought?

Thank you in advance.
